A bill that would rename the street in front of the Chinese Embassy in Washington, D.C., to honor victims of the Tiananmen Square massacre was introduced at the Capitol this week.
What it says: Through the legislation, the street, currently named 3505 International Place Northwest, would be called 1 Tiananmen Square Memorial Boulevard. The area lies between the intersections of International Drive, Northwest and Van Ness Street, Northwest and International Drive, Northwest and International Place, Northwest.
Who’s behind it: Rep. Andy Ogles (R, TN-5) introduced the bill, which has 17 co-sponsors, on Thursday.
The bigger picture: Activists and supporters of Chinese democracy commemorated the 34th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre on June 4. On that day in 1989, an estimated 10,000 pro-democracy protesters were killed by the communist military.
China is being run by the immoral, genocidal Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Earlier this month marked 34 years since the Tiananmen Square Massacre, where the Chinese government weaponized the nation’s military against its own people, mowing them down in the streets and murdering up to 10,000 people. As the CCP regime continues its reign of terror, it is important for America to unequivocally condemn the CCP’s human rights abuses.
